I’ve been meaning to put pen to paper (or rather fingers to keyboard) and craft a sarcastic little piece titled, “20 Telltale Signs You May Have OCD.”
Lord knows I could write an entire book.
Anyway, one of those signs will surely be buying baby products only if they are aesthetically pleasing.
Can you relate?
Even if a particular product is necessary but unfortunately happens to be a total eyesore, I will think twice, thrice, seven times before purchasing and will ultimately find an alternative.
If aesthetics are as important to you as they are to me, then you will love today’s post. After searching high and low for modern baby books that not only serve their purpose but are also pretty to look at, I’ve rounded up 12 of my favorites. These modern options are so pretty, you’ll want them displayed as decor!
The Story of You is an interactive photo journal for baby’s first year and beyond, encouraging parents to create new and meaningful habits as they document their child’s life.
Register the book with Artifact Uprising for photo tips, ideas for making the most of your book, and a complimentary set of prints. Each book purchase includes a beautiful gold pen, as well as adhesive for securing prints.
Unique and personal, this baby book makes a lovely album or Christening book. Featuring baby’s initial embellished with botanical illustrations and a choice of quotes, each book is hand printed in the brand’s London studio. Choose text color from copper, gold, silver or black.
Wrapped in a high-quality pink linen sleeve and embossed with gold leaf, this milestone book is so stylish you’ll want to display it as art.
The book features beautiful illustrations and a hard-cover lay-flat design. New parents are guided through the first year with monthly birthday pages, major milestones, holidays and space for personal stories.
This prompted journal helps parents easily document a complete childhood history for their child. It covers from when the mother is pregnant until the child is 18 years old.
Each phase and year of the child’s life has custom tailored prompts to ensure quick but meaningful documenting.
This book includes over 50 fill-in journal pages to record every moment from baby’s first step to their first days of school. The pages include space for photos, artwork, birthday memories and even school keepsakes. It also includes an area to fill in the family tree and information about mommy and daddy.
Personalize the book by displaying baby’s photo on the front of the book. Several cover color options are available, including gray, pink and blue.
A modern take on a baby memory book and journal, As You Grow stands out from the crowd of baby books with its elegant, chic, and timeless design. The gender-neutral artwork with guided sections provide space for parents to record moments from pregnancy to age five.
Author and illustrator Korie Herold poured over every page, adding artistic detail and flourishes that work to create a book you can interact with now and look back on for a lifetime. This chic design promotes longevity, as this keepsake book is intended to be shared and displayed for years to come.
This book is a stylish and modern baby memory book for documenting the life of a precious little one’s first year and beyond. Choose from 18 color schemes for the inside pages. Parents can also personalize the front window of the album for only $5.00.
A precious, classic, thoughtful baby book perfect for documenting “The Story of You” for your little one. This baby book was a labor of love created by Emily Ley of Simplified. After searching high and low for the perfect baby book for her son she decided to create one that was both modern and classic — with plenty of guided writing space as well as open space for moments and photographs.
The book features 64 pages, each with gold foil detailing, and a textured, cushioned hard cover.
This beautifully designed journal claims to have the perfect combination of photo pages, journal pages, and blank pages. Unlike most baby books, this one has high-quality photo sleeves to slip in 60 photos.
The book is filled with prompts and topics to give parents plenty of ideas on what to jot down. Bonus: 2 sewn pockets inside the cover for hospital bracelets and cards or other keepsakes.
This modern and elegant keepsake book will capture all the wonderful memories and milestones of baby’s first year. Playful illustrations and quotes add inspiration to every page, while the prompts help parents create a meaningful journal.

Each journal is wrapped in premium linen, hardbound and compact enough to take anywhere. Designed with meaningful and inspirational quotes, each journal contains 160 pages to help parents easily chronicle their journey from pregnancy through baby’s first year.
Give baby the personal gift of your handwriting in a beautiful keepsake that passes from your hands to theirs.
Thoughtful details include envelopes for loose keepsakes, a place for “A letter to my baby,” month to month milestones, “The way we told everyone you were coming” and “Things I don’t want to forget.”
Made to fit 4×4 photos, it comes with adhesive to keep each moment in place on extra thick paper with gold foil detail throughout.
Are you also very particular about buying only aesthetically pleasing products? If you’ve made it this far into the post, I assume the answer is yes.
So, tell me: What are other items (baby-related or otherwise) are you currently shopping for? I’d love to start a roundup series of products that are as pretty as they are functional.
